Starting with streaming, Gamers now have the ability to stream right to Facebook using Facebook Live using the Geforce experience app. The new version of the Shield allows for streaming of Netflix and Amazon prime over wifi to your TV in 4k along with becoming an integral part of the Nvidia home AI system. The Nvidia Spot microphone works seamlessly with the home AI system and if there are multiple ones, they can be used to triangulate your position.
Geforce Now is Nvidia’s product for cloud gaming and gaming on demand. Basically you download steam or the game OS you are using through the Geforce Now app. Once installed and logged in, you should see your whole game library and then be able to download and play each game within minutes. In-order to play you have to pay 25 dollars to purchase 20 gaming hours, and once the hours are up you would have to purchase more in order to keep playing. This kind of system is designed for the gamer that does not want to keep large games on their computer, as well as the casual gamer that does not necessarily have the system to run all of the best games.
